Sažetak
This paper tends to reveal whether individuals are more prone to behave like Homo-economicus or irrational individual led by short-run motivation. According to the traditional economic theory, individuals behave perfectly rationally and make their financial decisions based on their knowledge. On the other hand, behavioral theory neglects rational behavior assumed by traditional economics. Individuals do not act in their best interest and are prone to make irrational and wrong decisions. In the behavioral economics literature, as opposed to homo economicus, the irrational behavior is represented by the character of Homer Simpson who is often unreasonable, short-run-motivated, responsibility-averse, and does not use the acquired knowledge adequately. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the impact of financial knowledge, as a result of financial education, and behavioral control on subsequent financial behavior. Therefore, based on the results of the survey conducted among Croatian citizens, this research uses regression modeling to assess how financial knowledge and behavioral control affect responsible financial behavior among Croatian consumers. Results of research are valuable for proper educational policy and providing insight into motives behind the efficient financial behavior.
